“My Husband Is Fond Of Raping Me”, Divorce-Seeking Wife Tells Court

A businesswoman, Charity John, on Wednesday, prayed a Customary Court sitting in Jikwoyi, Abuja, to dissolve the marriage between her and her husband, Abel, ‘because he often rapes her.”

In a divorce petition, Charity said: “My husband is fond of raping me. I have endured this for a long time.”

She also alleged that Abel was a womanizer.

Responding, Abel, a businessman, who was present in court, in his defense, denied all the allegations.

“All that she said are false. I can’t rape my wife. I am not a womanizer, rather it is my wife that has cheated.
